The first UK exhibition for Chicago-born artist, Ed Paschke (1939-2004), will be at the Ashmolean Museum.
Ed Paschke: Visionary from Chicago, 1968-2004 is the third in the Ashmolean’s series of exhibitions of post-war and contemporary art presented in collaboration with the Hall Art Foundation (USA).
An additional four works have been lent by the artist Jeff Koons, who studied with Paschke and was hired as Paschke’s studio assistant in 1974.
Paschke was part of a group of artists known as the Chicago Imagists who emerged in the 1960s. He was strongly influenced by media imagery and popular culture – newspapers, magazines, advertisements, film and television, and some of his works are said to explore the underbelly of urban life and a dark side of Pop Art.
Ed Paschke: Visionary From Chicago, 1968-2004 is at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford from January 17 to July 5, 2015.
